Le huitième quantity des Demeures de l'esprit, le quatrième consacré à los angeles France, est constitué des régions Rhône-Alpes et Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur.
Voltaire et Rousseau sont presque voisins, entre Ferney et les Charmettes. Mme de Sévigné trône au sommet de l. a. butte de Grignan, ce Versailles de l. a. Provence. Cézanne n'était pas mal logé non plus, dans son joli Jas de Bouffan. Pourtant, quand Renoir vient y voir son ami, il s'enfuit rapidement motor vehicle il trouve que l'avarice règne dans l. a. demeure. los angeles vie était sans doute plus gaie aux Collettes, sa propre maison de Cagnes-sur-Mer. Et Picasso menait grand educate à Vauvenargues, derrière los angeles montagne Sainte-Victoire. Ce ne sont là, avec Fragonard, que les plus fameux des peintres dont ce quantity nous fait franchir le seuil, parmi lesquels Réattu, Ravier, Hébert, Utrillo, Mélik, and so forth.
Un seul compositeur, mais de taille : Berlioz, à l. a. Côte-Saint-André. Des inventeurs : Montgolfier ou Aristide Bergès. On pourrait dire aussi un mot de Nostradamus, ou bien d'Ampère, de Claude Bernard ou de Ferdinand Fabre. Cependant nous sommes loin d'en avoir fini avec les écrivains et les poètes : Daudet n'a jamais habité le moulin de Fontvieille mais son ami Mistral demeurait à Maillane, Charles Forot à Saint-Félicien, dans l'Ardèche, Charles Maurras à Martigues et Giono à Manosque, bien sûr. Et si nous remontons dans le temps, voici Honoré d'Urfé en son beau l. a. Bastie et son frère Anne en sa forteresse d'Urfé, sur los angeles montagne. Quant au savant Théodore Reinach, il refaisait l. a. Grèce dans sa villa Kérylos, à Beaulieu-sur-Mer.
